Over the weeks, the flood situation in the biggest northeastern state, Assam, has only worsened with people struggling to cope up with the same. The same has killed over 100 people with many, including animals, displaced.
As per reports, around 40 million people across 28 of the 33 districts have been affected. The floods are so violent that the famous Kaziranga National Park is currently 95% inundated forcing animals to flee out of the same. And this picture here is proof.
A rhino recently ventured on to NH-37 at Bagori Range to rest after it strayed out of Kaziranga. The police can be seen guarding the rhino while ensuring the smooth flow of traffic.
The forest officials say it will soon be driven back to the forest.
In Assam, as per a report, as many as 140 animals, including eight rhinos, have drowned in the flood-hit Kaziranga. The flood has killed eight rhinos, that the goverenemnt is working hard to preserve.
The flood situation in Assam is normal. However, since past two years, Assam has seen the forest floods. Also, the lack of coverage by media and lack of support from the governments – until the situation worsens – adds to the woes of the state.
